Tenable Nessus < 8.3.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (TNS-2019-02)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 123462
SynopsisTenable Nessus running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the Tenable Nessus application running on the remote host is prior to 8.3.0. It is, therefore, affected by:
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in OpenSSL. A remote attacker may be able to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to immediately close the TCP connection after the hosts encounter a zero-length record with valid padding.
- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the moment module before 2.19.3 for Node.js. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via regular expression of crafted date string different than CVE-2016-4055 to cause the CPU consumption. (CVE-2017-18214)
- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the duration function in the moment package before 2.11.2 for Node.js. An unauthenticated, remote attackers can exploit this issue, via date string ReDoS which will cause CPU consumption.
SolutionUpgrade to Tenable Nessus version 8.3.0 or later.
